The College of St John the Baptist was founded in 1555 by Sir Thomas White (1492-1567). The college took over the premises of St. Bernard's College, founded in 1437 by Henry Chichele, Archbishop of Canterbury, for Cistercian monks studying at Oxford University.

The college was laid out around a spacious quadrangle (the present Front Quadrangle) on a site outside the medieval walls in the suburb of Northgate Street (now called St. Giles), the main thoroughfare leading north out of the town.
